Easter an ideal time to see spectacular garden ponds

Easter an ideal time to see spectacular garden ponds

Horticulturists will be able to see some of the most impressive garden ponds in the country over Easter.

Finding some inspiration for their garden ponds could be the ideal way for keen horticulturists to spend their Easter weekend.

Many of the country's finest gardens are set to open their doors to the public in early April, providing a feast of ideas for domestic gardeners.

The Chelmsford Weekly News recommends a trip to see the split-level garden at Casa Mia in Great Totham.

In addition to an impressive rose garden and rockery, it has plenty of water, including a stream and a large koi carp pond.

Gardeners in Essex will be able to look for inspiration at Casa Mia during its open day on the afternoon of April 4th 2010.

The Daily Mail suggests visiting another site with an impressive garden pond among its features.

Castle Kennedy near Stranraer is home to a large lily pond surrounded by Rhododendrons and Azaleas, which makes for a spectacular sight when the plants are in bloom.
